La Chanson

(Le Serpent)

in English

by Marin Gale







What we would not do for some love, so close to the world, off the wall and back


you sitck out your tongue, you swallow a breath


or is pain after the effort, a small crack?


You with your body probes, I don't know, I know, I never knew


where were the walls behind all those doors?


I look at the road above your shoulders.


I like your feet to walk all over me


your big tail off


to reverse roles, to see some of the other dying


What we would not do for some love


I let the sun melt on wasted flowers


that your robes perhaps embrace


you know the blue dress


that night murders


morning, when the bodies are tired


we always applaud


Higher darkness to light


when you walk in front of me


there are dark stones


the palace destroyed, forced to break


bending your head you draw a forest


to lose with me entwined


the neck is a wonderful place


to break the kisses


you look so beautiful


asteland on the edge of your lips


to bite your skin until it bleeds


impossible dreams


the little box and it's porcelain casket


to believe that the cliffs


are the brand of your teeth


put anywhere


the insect drinks day and night


our pain


small animal on the back to wait


ready for lightening


we will make the world, that's it


make the world a few seconds


then goes the white hankerchief


lying on your back looks like


a black butterfly when he is away


What we would not do for some love


I want to write more


even anger in our bellies


it's difficult to follow


to write more against your body


but my mouth is dead


I just made love with a man


the snake
